Every week on Monday morning , the Council and our invited guests weigh in at the Watchers Forum, short takes on a major issue of the day, the culture, or daily living. This weeks question: What Will Be The Most Significant Technological Development of the Next Decade?. The Razor: There are two game changers I see on the horizon, although the timing is probably much longer than a decade.. The first is driverless cars. Human beings are terrible drivers compared to computers. Even the best drivers can be distracted or suffer poor judgment in an instant. It will take a while for people to trust their cars, but when they do, American life will be changed in ways not seen since the internal combustion engine chased horses off the road. People will enjoy the independence of the car without the danger and required concentration, and while Im not sure what this would mean to everyday life I would expect it to change.. The second is an electronic universal translator. Were already seeing these used ...

Although not as significant numerically, final heights of European men who reached maturity have also been increasing over the past two centuries, as shown in Table 2.2. In some countries, average heights increased by as much as 10 cm per century. Body weight has also increased. Figure 2.1 shows that for some age groups, the body mass index (BMI), a measure of weight adjusted for height (equal to kg/m increased by about 10-15% within the past 100 years. This chapter aims to elucidate the long-run relationship between labor productivity and body size. In particular, it will be shown that improvements in the nutritional status of a number of societies in Western Europe since the early eighteenth century may have initiated a virtuous circle of technophysio evolution. The theory of technophysio evolution posits the existence of a synergism between technological and physiological improvements that has produced a form of human evolution that is biological but not genetic, rapid, culturally ...

In 1972, the Office of Technology Assessment was set up to give the United States Congress information that would enable decision-making about technology that reflected a wide range of concerns, adopted a long-term horizon and had a sound factual basis. Nor was Australia immune from these ideas. In the late 1970s there was a Committee of Inquiry into Technological Change in Australia, known as the Myers Committee. It was tasked with a mission to "examine, report and make recommendations on the process of technological change in Australia", in particular around issues such the possibility that some technologies might lead to massive unemployment. One result of this committee was the establishment of the Technological Change Committee of the Australian Science and Technology Council, with a mission to "review on a continuing basis the processes and trends in technological change in Australia and elsewhere; and to evaluate and report on the direct and indirect effects of technological change at the ...
Autori: Marcel O. Vlad, Alexandru Dan Corlan, Vlad T. Popa, John Ross. Editorial: PNAS, 104, p.18398-1840, 2007.. Rezumat:. The portfolio effect is the increase of the stability of a system to random fluctuations with the increase of the number of random state variables due to spreading the risk among these variables; many examples exist in various areas of science and technology. We report the existence of an opposite effect, the decrease of stability to random fluctuations due to an increase of the number of random state variables. For successive industrial or biochemical processes of independent, random efficiencies, the stability of the total efficiency decreases with the increase of the number of processes. Depending on the variables considered, the same process may display both a portfolio as well as an anti-portfolio behavior. In disordered kinetics, the activation energy of a reaction or transport process is the result of a sum of random components. Although the total activation energy ...
In line with many sources, up-to-date technological developments mixed with social networking and viral marketing, has led to an outbreak in one thing referred to as Nature Deficit Dysfunction. I also am indecisive on whether or not technology and new communication is helpful or not. Students do that on a regular basis when dictator-like policies and rules govern technology use. Change is also centered on FREE instruments that are already readily available in the classroom or that are easily accessed by Web download. Quick forward to 2016, and I now work with NUITEQ® as a K-12 technology specialist, and realized that the publish needed some updating.. Grownup learners can utilize technology instruments and apply new abilities instantly to on the job duties. Im a big fan of technology that helps us. But Ive seen far too much technology that tries to do the whole lot and will get in the way. Utilizing technology within the classroom will engage kids as they are excited to make use of ...
On the contrary: To the extent that technocriticism is about the advocacy of particular developmental outcomes it would seem to me that the fact that vast majorities of actually existing people are variously religious taken together with the fact that their religiosity will often have to be taken into account both in effective policy and in effective formulations of recommendation would imply the opposite sort of conclusion; namely, that technocentrism should take pains to remain alive to religions as abiding forces in the world we share and will continue to share in whatever futures come to pass. Further, to the extent that technocriticism is an occasion for documenting or theorizing about the impact of technology on peoples lives the fact that religious people are fully-real people and are impacted as much as anybody else by disruptive technological development and habitual prosthetic practices would likewise seem to imply the opposite sort of conclusion ...

Aimed at supporting the expressive potential of the experimentation in the eco-visualization field, there is today an actual technological development which has led to the evolution of the Sensing Technologies, computational graphics, network systems, real-time data processing applied to locative media and digital mapping.. This research approach characterises the interdisciplinary environment called eco-visualization or in other words adoption of art and design techniques in order to confer visibility to otherwise invisible environmental data in order to promote the awareness of energy depletion and environmental pollution through visual feedbacks.. The Eco-Visualization finds its historical roots in the Environmental Art, in the cultural and artistic activism of the 60s as well as in some collective performances of the 80s (J. Beuys, 7000 Oaks, 1982). It is based on the convergence of three fields media art, information visualization and affordable design.(1). Pioneer and theoretician of the ...
Its partly because of this problem that Im interested in how technology can help deliver training programs like Dore. Computers or games consoles are the perfect way to monitor the exercises and provide feedback so that the exercisers knows they are doing it correctly. This reduces wasted time, improves the rate of progress and most importantly, reduces the demand on the rest of the family. This all adds up to a more effective treatment with a lower drop-out rate.. One technological development that has a lot promise is the slowly emerging 3D cameras. These are not strictly speaking 3D cameras, instead they use a variety of methods to identify depth and distance. This information is then passed back to the computer which can use it to workout if objects are moving towards it or away from it. Something that is very hard to do with a traditional camera.. The best demonstration of this technology I can find is this Second Life demonstration. Second Life (SL) is a virtual reality world shared by ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Determination of trisomy 9p by molecular cytogenetic technology. AU - Xiuyuan, D.. AU - Sanoudou, D.. AU - Fengtang, Y.. AU - Hong, C.. PY - 1999/12/28. Y1 - 1999/12/28. N2 - Objective. To use molecular cytogenetic techniques for the determination of complex chromosomal aberrations that could not be distinguished by conventional cytogenetic method. Methods. Chromosome painting, comparative genomic hybridization (CGH) and color banding chromosome analysis (RxFISH) were used to identify a case with chromosome 9 aberration by G-banding. Results. The patient has a karyotype of 46,XX,9p+ by G-banding. Both chromosomes 9 were uniformly painted, including the extra segment on one of the 9p alleles. CGH revealed a duplication of the entire 9p short arm. After analysis with RxFISH the patients karyotype could be accurately described as 46,XX,dup9p(p11→p24:: p24→qter). Conclusion. The present report shows that some late technological developments in the field of cytogenetics can ...

7. Benchmarking hospital costs in the UK: increasing efficiency and driving innovation in a health care industry?* Sue Llewellyn and Deryl Northcott INTRODUCTION A Health Industry Model (HIM) recognizes the broad contribution that health care can make to national economic development. Yet, wherever and whenever health care is publicly financed, a key government policy objective is achieving technological development and innovation within resource constraints. Governments have employed a variety of mechanisms to achieve this aim. In the UK, for example, since the 1980s, health care management policy has undergone several reforms, from general management to resource management and the internal market through to, latterly, the New Labour governments modernization programme. Several authors have charted the history of these developments (see, for example, Bourn and Ezzamel, 1986a; Broadbent et al., 1991; Broadbent, 1992; Preston et al., 1992; Harrison and Pollitt, 1994; Hood, 1995; Jones and ...
This thesis investigates the combination of changes in the population and employment into sectors in rural Sweden for the period 1960-2010. The aim is to describe and analyze the demographic changes together with the labour market changes, and to account for the spatial outcome of these changes by considering the heterogeneity of rural areas. The analysis departs from the framework of rural restructuring, where changes in employment and population in rural Sweden are interpreted as local products of the global processes of technological development, social modernization and globalization. Empirically, the analysis is based on a combination of longitudinal censuses and register data on the Swedish population covering the period 1960-2010.. The first part of the aim is achieved by applying a life-course perspective and exploiting the longitudinal nature of the data. The life-course perspective distinguishes between historical time and the age of individuals, making it possible to situate changes ...

Should we trust technology experts? We live in times of incredible innovations and impressive complexity. The last 30 years of technological development overturned our society, and the next 30 will likely reshape the foundations of what it means to be human. Machines have been the wealth engines of our industrial modernity, while data control and artificial intelligence will structure the power battlefields of this century. Its not hard then to understand why technologists, computer scientists, engineers, tech-entrepreneurs, IT experts, data analysts, etc - dress the status of champions in our age. They are shipping us into the wonders of Web 3.0, Industry 4.0, 5G communications, the blockchain transition, the G (eneticengineering). R (obotics). AI. N (anotechnologies) Revolution…and another thousand of cryptic acronyms forbidden to ordinary mortals. We are flooded with tech-narratives. Lets start by playing with our imaginations.

So science and religion have something in common. But science and churches are very contrary. Science and religion (in the sense described above) are a permanent revolution. Everything is changing and fragile. But churches defend changes. They try to keep the status quo. I assume that ron talks about churches. And in my opinion the main difference between science and churches is not the way how they work. It is the task in our society which they perform. A dogma exerts a stabilising effect on a community. It provides a clear guideline and covers important social aspects in our life. It creates trust and confidence and provides meaning. These are valuable aspects in a society. But as I said it has its price. With a dominant dogma (of a church or cult) cultural, social and technological development is stalled ...

Participants will trace technological developments and their consequences in medicine, alongside consideration of how these new ways of seeing the human body reflected and were shaped by the concerns of scientists, physicians, artists, and the general population. The aim of the Summer School is to bring together current and recently completed postgraduates from the humanities and sciences with experts from a number of different fields to engage with a range of technologies for making scientific images of the human body, including the fine arts, drawing and painting, as well as film, photography, X-ray and the current medical imaging techniques of digital biomedicine... What are the epistemological, moral and philosophical consequences of our desire to picture all functions of the human body? What does it mean to be human in a world of global mass media in which the individual body is central, yet increasingly public and commercialised? Are there alternatives to the understanding in Western ...
Taken to its logical extreme, this dynamic brings us to the point where the economy does not require human labor at all. This does not automatically bring about the end of work or of wage labor, as has been falsely predicted over and over in response to new technological developments. But it does mean that human societies will increasingly face the possibility of freeing people from involuntary labor. Whether we take that opportunity, and how we do so, will depend on two major factors, one material and one social. The first question is resource scarcity: the ability to find cheap sources of energy, to extract or recycle raw materials, and generally to depend on the Earths capacity to provide a high material standard of living to all. A society that has both labor-replacing technology and abundant resources can overcome scarcity in a thoroughgoing way that a society with only the first element cannot. The second question is political: what kind of society will we be? One in which all people are ...

Nature) - It might take years or even decades until BCI and other neurotechnologies are part of our daily lives. But technological developments mean that we are on a path to a world in which it will be possible to decode peoples mental processes and directly manipulate the brain mechanisms underlying their intentions, emotions and decisions; where individuals could communicate with others simply by thinking; and where powerful computational systems linked directly to peoples brains aid their interactions with the world such that their mental and physical abilities are greatly enhanced. Such advances could revolutionize the treatment of many conditions, from brain injury and paralysis to epilepsy and schizophrenia, and transform human experience for the better. But the technology could also exacerbate social inequalities and offer corporations, hackers, governments or anyone else new ways to exploit and manipulate people. And it could profoundly alter some core human characteristics: private ...
Businesses and local authorities spend thousands of pounds on branding, buildings and attractions, to encourage customers and footfall, yet they are marred by chewing gum litter. Local councils throughout the British Isles are taking up the challenge to not only clean up the mess it creates, but also on education to discourage littering. Chewing gum litter is the second most prolific form of littering after cigarette butts; an estimated 92% of urban paving stones have gum stuck on them. Prior to a recent technological development, this has resulted in local authority funds spent on many hours cleaning up the mess. Worldwide, we humans chew about 560,000 tons of gum each year, a lot of which ends up on our streets. In the run up to the Olympic games in London 2012, local authorities encouraged visitors to the area by ensuring it was looking its best, cleaning up over 300,000 pieces of gum in the process. With the technology available at the time, it took over three months to complete, costing up ...

Over the past forty years, Finnish artist and technology pioneer Erkki Kurenniemi (b. 1941) has been a composer of electronic music, experimental filmmaker, computer animator, roboticist, inventor, and futurologist. Kurenniemi is a hybrid-a scientist-humanist-artist. Relatively unknown outside Nordic countries until his 2012 Documenta 13 exhibition, "In 2048," Kurenniemi may at last be achieving international recognition. This book offers an excavation, a critical mapping, and an elaboration of Kurenniemis multiplicities. The contributors describe Kurenniemis enthusiastic, and rather obsessive, recording of everyday life and how this archiving was part of his process; his exploratory artistic practice, with productive failure an inherent part of his method; his relationship to scientific and technological developments in media culture; and his work in electronic and digital music, including his development of automated composition systems and his "video-organ," DIMI-O. A "Visual Archive," a ...
Other attempts at using Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) coated materials that claim oxidation or pathogen destruction have proven ineffective because of slow oxidation efficiency. The intended catalysts in these cases are either not photocatalytically active and/or delaminate (or split into thin layers) easily. The patented AiroClean420 technology utilizes a nano particle science to make a titanium oxide membrane that is photocatalytically active, which also binds to the applied surface(s) without delaminating. Nanotechnology comprises technological developments on the nanometer scale, usually 0.1 to 100 nm, or ten thousand times smaller than the width of a human hair. ...
Cell substrates managed in controlled culture environments have become, over the past few decades, the subject of intensive technological developments for the biomanufacturing of viral vaccines. The driving force of such work is an expanding demand for safety, high production capacities, cost savings, and flexibility. Egg, tissue, and primary-cell-based manufacturing methods of limited capacity are now considered to be outdated technologies. In the influenza vaccine field, for example, time delays in vaccine delivery (especially during pandemic responses) have increased concerns…. ...

Technological developments have dramatically reduced mortality resulting from many diseases. In many instances, however, disease incidence is increasing, although for some conditions without standardized tracking mechanisms, trends are difficult to determine accurately. The burden from current patterns of disease and disability is enormous and extracts a terrible toll from individuals, families, and communities. Nearly 12 million children in the U.S (17 percent) suffer from one or more developmental disabilities, including deafness, blindness, epilepsy, speech defects, cerebral palsy, delays in growth and development, behavioral problems, or learning disabilities. Learning disabilities alone affect 5 to 10 percent of children in public schools, and these numbers appear to be increasing.. Small exposures to substances like lead, mercury, or polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which have no discernible impact on adults, can permanently damage the developing brain of a child, if the exposure occurs ...
Now, after saying this it looks like an ideal moment to say what is the main problem I see with this article. This article is focused on the idea "how great was Atlantis". It even goes so far as to say that it was utopia to which our race will eventually return, by technological development. But even from the article itself it is clearly not true. And the reason for this is Faraday law. If you indeed use wireless electricity you dont "magically" transport it from one point to another. It still has to pass all the mid points. If there will be metal on its path, this metal according to Faraday law will act like a small generator - it will get small voltages an small currents ("small" is the best scenario). If you want to power a city in this way you need firstly to remove the metal from it. Which means to remove all technology, because as I explained above the electromagnetic field will not only power a circuit, but it will effect all of the parts of the circuit. For complex circuits this means ...
Organ transplant surgery has become the principle method to treat patients with dysfunctional organs. However, at present, the biggest hurdle to overcome is the severe shortage of available organs.

The current technologies, also known as the first-generation ones, for converting triglycerides into fuels are covered, including conventional methods such as transesterification, pyrolysis, cracking, and emulsions. Recent, second-generation technological developments that lead to more commercially viable biofuels based on diesel-like hydrocarbons are also discussed. ...
Regular self-monitoring of blood glucose levels, and ketones when indicated, is an essential component of type 1 diabetes (T1D) management. Although fingerstick blood glucose monitoring has been the standard of care for decades, ongoing rapid technological developments have resulted in increasingly widespread use of continuous glucose monitoring (CGM). This article reviews recommendations for self-monitoring of glucose and ketones in pediatric T1D with particular emphasis on CGM and factors that impact the accuracy and real-world use of this technology.
MCTIC minister Gilberto Kassab is trying to increase the science budget ahead of the amendment. His 2017 request, included in a government proposal that has not yet been voted on by Brazils congress, would increase the budget by 28% to 5.9 billion reais.. "The MCTIC has managed to include in the annual budget a value thats enough to meet the needs of the sector," a spokesperson told Nature.. Davidovich disagrees. He says that, after accounting for inflation, research needs at least 10 billion reais to match the federal science spending levels of three years ago - so it is well under par.. To scientists further dismay, the National Council for Scientific and Technological Development - a federal funding agency - has been further demoted within the new structure of the MCTIC. The council used to be an independent body whose president would report directly to the science minister; now it and other institutions such as the Brazilian Space Agency will report to a director who in turn will report ...
Interest in vaccine development has been rekindled over recent years due to the failure to treat infections caused by multiresistant bacteria. New technological developments such as immunoproteomics provide the platform for identifying appropriate immunogenic proteins for new vaccine design. Recombinant technology has enabled researchers to develop molecular vaccines which have been shown to elicit both cellular and humoral responses (7, 20).. We have shown that both OmpA and OmpK36 are strongly immunogenic (17), and in this investigation, the gene encoding each of the antigens was cloned in a eukaryotic plasmid which was administered as a DNA vaccine. Our results confirmed that recombinant pVAX1 plasmids containing either the ompA or the ompK36 gene were able to express the respective protein in the mammalian cells. OmpA and OmpK36 antibodies were detected in the sera of animals vaccinated with the pOmpA or the pOmpK36 plasmids.. The IgG subclass of antibodies produced against the DNA vaccine ...

New media and the new communication spaces they bring are often heralded as revolutionary contexts of language use. This chapter aims to look beyond this hype to consider the effects of this recent context of use on existing language policy theory. An initial case study is Facebook and its Translations application, which I examine using virtual ethnographic methods. In this context, the commercial entity Facebook and the individuals of the Irish language Translations application are the primary language policy actors, developing the de facto language policy of this domain and affecting the multilingual World Wide Web. It is concluded that commercial entities, technological developments, and individuals are not merely agents or actors in language policy processes. Instead, the author adopts the concepts of media convergence, participatory culture, and collective intelligence to understand how media producers and consumers act in new and unpredictable ways in language policy processes online.

I will get e-mails complaining that this is further proof of the problem of "politicizing" science, as if pouting and stamping ones foot at reality ever solved a problem in the first place. Look: Consensus science is a profoundly democratic process in which people collaborate in the context of well-managed societies to apply shared standards to the solution of problems. This is a matter of good politicized science working better than perniciously politicized science -- the latter in the service of, say, fundamentalist Christianity or polluters or tobacco companies who couldnt care less what the best account of the facts on offer happen to be. That scientific and technological development have political dimensions is ineradicable from the enterprise of each. What is wanted is good politicization. What is required for that is a recongition of what constitutes and supports this good politicization. Pretending not to be political, or decrying the political, or striving sanctimoniously to be ...
Faced with military budget cuts and fluctuating energy prices the global military simulation and virtual training market is in an excellent position for growth as the demand for more cost effective, cohesive training systems across militaries increases.

While modern society has undergone an unprecedented economical growth, people get to know losing something important. Technological development has created a convenient life; the environment has been deteriorated. Due to that education is available for almost everyone in modern society, the literacy rate has been growing ever since in human history. On the other hand, people tend to be self-interested and egotistical searching for own profits through introducing the principle of competition, which might be associated with the increase in patients with mental problems that are often observed in this contemporary world. In a society where women play a significant and effective role in politics and economics, there are commonly observed problems such sterility and gynaecological diseases. As medicine has developed, people became able to prevent a broad range of infections. However, why do hospitals which are well equipped with medical examination and treatment facilities form a long queue of ...

Modern management of stone disease has changed significantly, particularly in the last two decades, due to the rapid technological developments. A complete evaluation, appropriate preparation and close follow-up of every case has become more important in an attempt to bring patients to a stone-free status with minimal complications. Minimally invasive procedures have gained more importance than ever but application of these procedures must proceed in a standardised manner, following an appropriate training program which will enable residents to shorten the learning curves. Moreover, the impact of stone disease itself (as well as the procedures performed) on the quality of life of patients, should be kept in mind during follow-up as well as management of particularly recurrent and complex cases. Thus, in this EULIS session, in addition to taking a close look at recent developments (particularly on the pathophysiology and epidemiology of stone disease), we will try to focus on the importance of ...
Researchers at the São Paulo State Cancer Institute (ICESP) in Brazil have succeeded in using a genetically manipulated virus to destroy tumor cells upon injection into mice with prostate cancer.. The virus also made tumor cells more sensitive to chemotherapy drugs, halting tumor progression and almost eliminating tumors in some cases..

The research was supported by São Paulo Research Foundation - FAPESP under the aegis of the Thematic Project "Cancer gene therapy: strategic positioning for translational studies". Brazils National Council for Scientific and Technological Development (CNPq) also supplied funding, as did Sanofi.. "We used a combination of gene therapy and chemotherapy to combat prostate cancer in mice," said Strauss. "We chose ...
Efforts to understand nervous system structure and function have received new impetus from the federal Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative. Comparative analyses can contribute to this effort by leading to the discovery of general principles of neural circuit design, information processing, and gene-structure-function relationships that are not apparent from studies on single species. We here propose to extend the comparative approach to nervous system maps comprising molecular, anatomical, and physiological data. This research will identify which neural features are likely to generalize across species, and which are unlikely to be broadly conserved. It will also suggest causal relationships between genes, development, adult anatomy, physiology, and, ultimately, behavior. These causal hypotheses can then be tested experimentally. Finally, insights from comparative research can inspire and guide technological development. To promote this research ...
Researchers from the University of Granada (UGR), and from the Center for Electrochemical Research and Technological Development (Centro de Investigación y Desarrollo Tecnológico en Electroquímica, CIDETEQ) and the Center of Engineering and Industrial Development (Centro de Ingeniería y Desarrollo Industrial, CIDESI), both in Mexico, have developed a process that allows to clean waters containing heavy metals and organic compounds considered pollutants, using a new adsorbent material made from the peels of fruits such as oranges and grapefruits.. Said peels are residues which pose a problem for the food industry, given that they take up a great volume and arent very useful nowadays. 38.2 million tons of said fruit peels are estimated to be produced worldwide each year in the food industry.. The research, in which the UGR participates, has served for designing a new process by which, thanks to an Instant Controlled Pressure Drop treatment, it is possible to modify the structure of said ...
In the field of Salt and Health we will also have special sessions with iodine experts.. Salt Production Sessions. The Salt Production track of the symposium will cover a broad range of topics relating to all aspects of salt production, including mine safety, history of salt production, solar salt issues and possibilities for value added products in the salt marketplace. More than 60 papers will be presented in podium sessions and poster sessions, along with discussion sessions on safety topics. This will make the World Salt Symposium the global forum of choice for discussions on salt production.. Salt and the Environment. The Salt and the Environment track of the symposium will cover several topics that include a number of sessions and keynotes on the benefits of technological developments to the use of rock salt in winter maintenance and how these developments move forward the concept of safe and sustainable snowfighting. Additionally, several sessions will look at ways in which the salt ...

Downloadable! Along with the economic and technological developments of the past decades, obesity has become a growing public health problem. This study empirically investigates whether the large and widespread increases in body-mass index (BMI) that have been observed around the world are related to economic freedom, as measured and defined by the Economic Freedom of the World Index. Economic freedom is part of the environment in which individuals make choices about food intake and physical activity, and may encourage unhealthy behavior and affect body weight by changing the opportunity sets. It may for example affect the quality and quantity of foods available to consumers, the access to safety nets, and the access to environments for physical activity. The empirical analysis is based on a panel of 31 high-income countries and data for the period 1983 to 2008. It finds a positive and statistically significant relationship between the level of economic freedom and both the level of, and five-year
Social and technological developments are constantly changing the way our world looks. Our living conditions and habits change and along with them, the products that surround us. Every change is reflected in materials and surfaces, as well as in the colors used for products. In order for a product such as a car to be perceived as current, attractive and true to its brand, OEM colors need to reflect the zeitgeist, even though they already have to be designed and determined several years in advance.. Our designers in the United States, Japan, China and Germany tackle these changes very early on and translate them into colors. Based on their research, a new color collection for the automotive industry is published each year with global and regional color trends. For BASFs annual Automotive Color Trends, our design team in Münster develops colors for the European market.. ...
